New Found Glory, 'Not Without a Fight' (Epitaph)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Kenny Herzog

The sixth studio album from this Florida five-piece represents a dual rebirth -- it's their return to an indie label and first full-length since experimenting with the cartoonishly thrashy side project International Superheroes of Hardcore. Produced by blink-182's Mark Hoppus, Not Without a Fight bobs and weaves between chugga-chugga riffs and poppy lead licks, with Jordan Pudnik's well-meaning whine bouncing off Chad Gilbert's more assertive (and appealing) bark. On "47" and "Such aMess" in particular, they bring a convincing ruckus, though the boilerplate inner turmoil seems a bit passé.
